Meet Esmerelda! She is a 5 year old Puggle weighing in at 37.8 lbs. Esmerelda is a super-snuggler and would prefer to be your only dog so she doesn’t have to share your love and your lap. Esmerelda loves her foster mom and jumps right up to sit on her lap then flip over and lay like a baby to get her belly rubbed and take a snooze. She also likes to rub her head under her foster moms chin, its her way of giving a doggie-hug. She is energetic on walks and when she gets back home she goes right to her bed or crate to relax. Esmerelda is also perfectly house trained. She seems to be somewhat wary of strangers, particularly men and children in certain situations, but has begun to trust and play with the 12 and 15 year olds in her foster family.
Esmerelda would love to find a quiet adult only home that enjoys walking, hiking and rubbing ears and bellies. She will thrive in training classes, she already knows how to “sit” like a pro!
